Personal Info

Languages spoken: 

After graduating with a BS in CS, I worked in desktop programming using Visual FoxPro for some years before being laid off at the end of 2003. Soon after, I became an at-home mom and programming joined photography and videography as a hobby instead of profession. I found Drupal in 2005 and since then have built several sites for free for myself and for local clubs and charities. As an offshoot of one of my sites, I developed the Advanced Forum, Advanced Profile Kit, and Author Pane modules.
